Installing The KeyMusician Keyboard
Before installing, please take a moment to read the Release Notes. There's not a lot to read there, but it is good to read it, since it alerts you to known problems for which there is no current fix, and how to work-around them. Reading the release notes may save you from some potential frustrations.
